Blue Light Report - November / December 2019

As PIBF Co-Chairman, I am proud to announce an accrual increase for the Welders, Journeymen, and Helpers. The Journeymen rate increased from $205 to $220, and the Helpers increased from $136 to $146 per credit. Additionally, retired members will enjoy a five percent increase in their monthly amount. After the pension raises were calculated, the fund is still at 110.8 percent!

Blue Light Report - November / December

It was great getting to visit with all the members at the September meeting.  I also enjoyed seeing all the new members along with their families. Our Local is continually growing in record numbers.  If you haven’t made plans to attend the December meeting, make plans now. 

There is always knowledge to gain by attending our regular meetings, and it gives you a chance to become more actively involved.

Work is still very slow in my jurisdiction, but I am still diligently working to improve this situation. I wish I had a more positive outlook, but presently all the work is in the Northeast.

I would like to take the time to recognize the amazing job that Jesse Johnson did on restructuring our Local 798 web page.  Hopefully, our Membership will have an easier time keeping up with the job lists, the Action Network, and current events.

I would also like to continue to remind every member how important staying active on our Action Network is for our future. This is a fantastic way for our voices to be heard, and our way of life be recognized and valued.  The success of our great Local depends on active involvement from ALL of our membership.

In closing, please remember, I am here to serve you. Please feel free to call with any questions or concerns. If you cannot reach me on the office phone, then call my cell number, 918-991-5341.  God bless this great Local, and God bless each one of you.

  • Blue Light Report 2 - November / December 2019
    2019 is rapidly coming to a close. If this year has taught us anything, it’s that we must be prepared to fight for every mile of pipeline that we get to lay.
  • Blue Light Report Dispatch - November / December 2019
    I have been looking back over past Blue Light reports from 1974 to 1976, and I have found some very interesting information. I could copy and paste some of the 1974 reports, and you would not be able to tell the difference. The irony is unbelievable.
  • Blue Light Report Organizer Update - November / December 2019
    I hope this report finds everyone doing well. It was nice visiting with members during the September meeting, where we had nominations for officers for the upcoming election. I would like to congratulate all the candidates and wish each of you good luck in your endeavors. There is no greater honor than serving the members of this great local union.
